On KC & MW's Facebook Fanpage: Comment by Isabelle Bochet: Please pass this on to Mr Costner: a tribute to your inspirational work in this interview you may enjoy
I listened to the interview and Isabelle says she was able to hand her screenplay to KC at the Paris, France, concert. She's hoping that anyone who may be remotely connected to KC can let him know that she's hoping to get a response at some point. She also said she was inspired by KC and Dances With Wolves.
